Michael Jordan's Olympic shoes to sell at Grey Flannel Auctions

The pair of shoes that Michael Jordan wore as the USA won gold at the 1984 Olympic Games will come up for sale with Grey Flannel Auctions in December.

These are the last shoes Jordan would wear as an amateur

Jordan wore the white Converse basketball sneakers against Spain in the final of the men's basketball event at the Los Angeles Olympics.

The Olympic Games came just two months before Jordan would start his rookie season with the Chicago Bulls - the beginning of the most remarkable career basketball has seen. He averaged 17 points per game in the Olympics, establishing his name as a star before his professional debut.

According to ESPN, Jordan gifted the signed shoes to a ball boy, who met the player in the locker room following the medal ceremony.

They will open at $5,000, though should achieve far more. Jordan's "Flu Game" shoes made $104,765 at Grey Flannel in December 2013.

Also among the early highlights announced by Grey Flannel is Julius "Dr J" Erving's 1980 Philadelphia 76ers game-used uniform, which is joined by the commemorative basketball he used to score the 20,000th point of his career in 1981.
